YOU MAY REMEMBER A WHILE BACK I POSTED ARTICLES ABOUT TONY THE BUTCHER PARTS 1&2.HERE IS A DIFFERENT ANGLE ON THE SAME STORY……………….Eddie Munoz knows a secret about Las Vegas.

As the operator of one of the city’s oldest in-room adult entertainment services, Munoz knows Vegas is a town fuelled by the unceasing buzz of money and vice. When he was at the top of his game his phones rang 100 times a day, and he dispatched private nude “dancers” (prostitution is illegal in Las Vegas) to the hotels along the Strip fifteen to twenty times a night, raking in, he says, $240,000 a year in referral fees.

That’s not the secret.

The secret, Munoz says, lies in the hundreds of miles of modern glass fiber and aging copper wire buried beneath the town’s sun-baked streets, and in the dozens of digital switches that speed data and voice from one end of the Strip to the other. Munoz believes that for a decade a shadowy cabal of criminals, corrupt insiders and professional hackers has had an illicit stranglehold on Vegas cyberspace, and all but muscled him out of the adult entertainment industry by selectively blocking, tapping and rerouting the telephone lines crucial to the outcall biz.

“In this business, you receive your calls from five o’clock in the afternoon until five o’clock in the morning, and that’s when they hit us,” says Munoz. “It’s like you’re the Maytag man. The phone will not ring.”

These days Munoz is lucky if he gets one or two customers a night, and his once great empire of vice is a threadbare operation run from an office in his home, far from Vegas’ neon core. He’s hanging on primarily through his hard-won ownership of nearly half of the five hundred licensed news racks on the Strip, which he crams with stacks of his own paper, “The Las Vegas Informer” — twelve gritty pages of advertisements for “Red Hot Red Heads” and “Hot Hot Hot Tall Sexy Blondes.” Until recently, every phone number advertised in the paper went to Munoz’s switchboard, yet his phones still didn’t ring. The economics of the situation eventually forced him to sell advertising space to a competitor to pay the rent.

Munoz’s phone problems are legion; his log of trouble-reports stretches longer than a junkie’s rap sheet. Callers from outside Vegas, or from payphones and cell phones, get through, he says, but hotel callers get false busy signals, or reach silence, driving them into the arms of competing services. Sometimes calls are rerouted directly to a competitor, he claims. And when a would-be customer does get through, and Munoz dispatches a dancer to the tourist’s hotel room, she’s likely to find another entertainer already there. “Sometimes they beat us to the calls, like they’re listening,” says Munoz.

At least three other adult entertainment outfits, a private investigator and a bail bondsman have reported similar patterns. “I’d get half a ring, and pick up the phone, and there would be no one there,” says Hilda Brauer, the former owner of the now-defunct “Sexy Girls” outcall service. In 1998, Brauer filed suit against the local phone company, a competitor she blamed for the problem, and the publisher of the Donnelly Directory, in which Sexy Girls had seven full page ads. She later dropped the suit, closed her business, and now makes her living telling fortunes for a psychic hotline. “I lost my home, I had to sell my furniture to get money to move into an apartment,” says Brauer.

Peter Vilencia, a former bail bondsman, had phone problems as well. Vilencia purchased Bail Bonds Inc. in 1996, and, after a week of brisk business springing drunken tourists and small time crooks from the Clark County Detention Center, he suddenly suffered a sharp drop in call volume. “At 4:00 in the afternoon Friday, my phone would stop ringing,” says Vilencia, who sold the company last year. “Almost every weekend for nearly four years, you could set your watch by it.”Could the Vegas cyber jacking be a myth, woven from the detritus of failed businesses and blurry technological anecdotes? If so, it’s a myth that’s attained the status of ‘common knowledge’ on Vegas’ nocturnal fringe, and in one bizarre case, it almost made an adult entertainment operator the victim of brutal mob reprisal.

Vinnie “Aspirins” and his power drill
It happened in 1998: An FBI investigation into police corruption in Vegas turned up a six-man organized crime plot to muscle in on a handful of successful Las Vegas outcall services, which had been trouncing a mob-backed venture headed by one of the men, Christiano DeCarlo.

According to court documents, the conspirators, allegedly affiliated with the Gambino crime family, were particularly interesting in moving in on Richard Soranno, the owner of one of the town’s largest services, Vegas Girls. They believed Soranno had been diverting phone calls from competitors, including DeCarlo, with the help of a mysterious computer expert named Charles Coveney.

“Coveney has contacts in the Sprint Telephone Company and is able to have telephone calls diverted from one number to another,” the gangsters believed, according to an FBI affidavit. The men expected to “persuade” Coveney to leave Seranno “and assist DeCarlo in his out call business by diverting telephone calls to DeCarlo.” Among the persuasive tools at the gang’s disposal, an enforcer named Vinnie “Aspirins” Congiusti, flown in from Tampa, who reputedly earned his nickname by once using a cordless power tool to drill holes in someone’s head.

When the mobsters began scouring Las Vegas for Coveney, the FBI was forced to swoop in, prematurely pulling the plug on a massive undercover operation. All six men later plead guilty to conspiracy. Vinnie “Aspirins” died in jail from apparent heart failure last year.

Today, there’s no love lost between Munoz and Soranno; Munoz believes, but admits he cannot prove, that Soranno is one of the masterminds of a plot to destroy his business, while Soranno says that’s exactly the kind of talk that nearly got him whacked……………………………………..If Sprint Central Telephone has never been hacked, the company is a rarity among telecommunications carriers. But SecurityFocus has learned that the company’s Las Vegas network may not be immune to hackers after all.

“Vegas was easy”
Until he went on the lam in the early nineties, Las Vegas was a home-away-from-home for the world’s most famous hacker, Kevin Mitnick, who had family in town. And from approximately 1992 until his February 1995 arrest, Mitnick says he enjoyed substantial illicit access to the Vegas network. What’s more, he recalls once being approached with an offer to redirect calls from an adult entertainment service for a single weekend, for $3,000. “They wanted me to somehow take control of the line and forward it,” Mitnick recalls.”

“It would have taken, had I wanted to do it, all of three minutes.”

Now Servicing Westchester

It’s not hard to find sex for sale in Westchester. At least it didn’t take me long to find people who offer it. You can try it yourself: log on to Bigdoggie.net, Theeroticreview.com, Eros.com, or
Craigslist.com. If the number of listings for women who are looking to make a buck with their bodies doesn’t overwhelm you—on Bigdoggie.com alone, there were 15 women available in the Westchester/Fairfield area and many more in New York City—the number of reviews from guys willing to indulge them will. Multiple escorts who serve Westchester and Fairfield had more than 50 reviews. And if you’re confused by what you read, it’s not surprising. Escort sites have a language all their own. “GFE,” for example, means “girlfriend experience,” which means that an escort is willing to do anything a “good” girlfriend would do. But that’s just the most commonly used initials; most of the others cannot be described here………………………………..READ FULL STORY

DIRTY COCK IN YOUR MOUTH…………..

Two people have been arrested in a Craiglist prostitution bust based out of a New Jersey veterinary office.

Somerset County Prosecutor Wayne Forrest and Bedminster Chief of Police William Stephens announced on Wednesday that a two-month investigation dubbed “Operation Net-Vet Harlot” resulted in the arrest of 50-year-old Cathy Rosania and 35-year-old David Baker.

Prosecutors say Rosania was the prostitute and Baker her business manager, or pimp. The office is located in the Pluckemin section of Bedminster Township.

Authorities say the investigation began when a Bedminster detective monitoring the Internet for criminal activity found an ad on Craigslist offering erotic services in the Pluckemin/Bedminster area.The officer responded to the ad and ultimately set up an appointment to meet with Rosania at the veterinary facility, located on Route 202-206 North in Bedminster, where Rosania was employed as a veterinary assistant…..READ FULL STORY http://abclocal.go.com/wabc/story?section=news/local&id=6296575

Online escort agencies like the Emperors Club are alive and thriving in South Florida, where they operate freely..

In light of the bombshell federal wiretap case that ensnared New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer — and referenced Miami escorts — a glimpse into South Florida’s lucrative online escort industry reveals it is thriving and operates without much enforcement.

”We don’t actively investigate escort services,” Broward Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Alesia Russell said. “We wouldn’t know unless there was a tip generated. Then we would check.”…

A check Tuesday of cityvibe.com and eros.com — sites where escorts and their companies post ads — showed 804 listings for female prostitutes in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. One site advertising male escorts listed 80 South Florida providers on Tuesday.

And that’s only three websites — all types of escorts also place not-so-discreet ads in local magazines, newspapers and elsewhere on the Internet……

”When the FBI gets interested in an escort agency, it is because of money laundering, not prostitution,” Hof said.

On a local level, authorities say it’s easier to pick up a few hookers every night along Federal Highway than to take down a booming Internet sex company……….READ FULL STORY http://www.bunnyranch.com/news/internetescortsites/Internet%20escort%20sites%20are%20rarely%20policed%20-%2003-12-2008%20-%20MiamiHerald_com.htm

SANTO DOMINGO.- Several New York area media report the court sentence on Wednesday of a man who arranged sex tours to the Dominican Republic and advertised them on Craigslist and other Web sites.

Saeed Ahmed, 29, received a sentence of 10 days of community service and five years probation, after his conviction in May for promoting prostitution through his company, Jump Off Destinations. The tour business operated from his Washington Heights apartment, said Edison Alban of the Manhattan district attorney’s office. He also had is own Web site, in addition to advertising on Craigslist.

The tour package included the number of days, airfare and accommodations, and specified the number of sex partners the client received, prosecutors said. The prostitutes’ fees were buried in the tour package’s upfront cash cost.

Ahmed, in a handwritten statement given to police said he also provided a chauffeur, tour guide and translator for clients visiting the Spanish-speaking Caribbean island for a cost of about $2,500.  He ran the tours for about eight months and included “female companionship, which included sexual favors,” prosecutors said.

A human rights activist from Equality Now uncovered the scheme when the ads were seen in Craigslist’s erotic services section…………….READ FULL STORY http://www.dominicantoday.com/dr/world/2007/7/19/24745/Erotic-Dominican-tours-operator-is-sentenced-in-NY

DWARF ‘MADAM’ ACCUSED OF EXPLOITING MINOR

A stout female dwarf dubbed “Shorty” has been busted in Brooklyn for pimping out an underage runaway to upscale clients she found over the Internet, police sources said yesterday.

Suspected mini-madam Jacqueline Green, 26 – who is 3-foot-9 and 145 pounds – is accused of using her Bedford-Stuyvesant apartment at 555 Quincy St. as a sex pad for johns who paid a high price for the teen’s services, which were advertised on Craigslist, the sources said.

The johns were mostly white men from Manhattan and Long Island who were charged $250 per half-hour for intercourse and $100 per half-hour for oral sex, said the sources……..READ FULL STORY http://www.nypost.com/seven/03102008/news/regionalnews/shrimp_pimp_101257.htm

Vitter is the first elected official to be identified as a client of the alleged prostitution ring. Earlier this year, a high-level diplomat resigned after his name was linked to the scandal in an ABC News report based on phone records that covered 2003 to 2006.

The federal judge hearing Jeanne Palfrey’s criminal case had barred the accused madam from releasing any additional records.

A lawyer who fervently contested the result of the 2000 presidential election and started an organization advocating voter reform used it to hide profits from another venture, the police say: a strip club that offered more than dancing.

The lawyer, Louis Posner, ran the Hot Lap Dance Club out of a fifth-floor loft in Hell’s Kitchen, where the police said the wealthy clientele paid as much as $5,000 for sex with dancers in private rooms.

The authorities raided the loft on Thursday night and arrested Mr. Posner, his wife, Betty, and 19 others on charges that included money laundering and promoting prostitution. No clients were arrested.

According to the police, Mr. Posner, a 52-year-old tax lawyer, funneled the club’s money to an account for Voter March, the grass-roots demonstration organization he started shortly after the 2000 election that has been largely inactive since 2004. He deposited money into several other accounts, the police said, adding that the amounts were low enough to avoid raising a red flag at the IRS.

Investigators seized $570,000 from 13 bank accounts and two safety deposit boxes held by the Posners, all of which could be traced back to the dance club, a spokeswoman for the Manhattan district attorney’s office said…….On its Web site, the Hot Lap Dance Club, also known as Premium Events, bills itself as the city’s premier private lap dance club, with nightly erotic shows featuring lesbian dancers and sex toys……………

A detective came across an advertisement on CRAIGSLIST for a lap dance club and, after responding to it, he received a link to the club’s Web site, according to the criminal complaint.

During an undercover detective’s visit to the club last August, a dancer told him that there was a “house dealer of cocaine,” who “made rounds at midnight,” the complaint said. One of the employees introduced the detective to a man who went by the name Lou, who told him he “was the boss,” according to the complaint. Some of the women called him “Daddy,” the complaint said.

On one occasion, Lou told the detective he had a source on the Police Department’s payroll and would be able to detect an officer, the complaint said.

When a detective visited the club in June, Ms. Malandri offered to meet with him at a different location with another dancer to have a threesome for $5,000, the complaint said.

The business earned $1 million over 10 months, the police said.

On Friday afternoon, the club had a notice on the door saying it was closed……….READ FULL STORY http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/19/nyregion/19brothel.html?ref=nyregion …….http://www.hotlapdance.com/…………..BACK IN MARCH A BUSSINESSMAN GOT KICKED IN THE FACE BY ACCIDENT IN HOTLAPDANCE I SUSPECT THIS MAY HAVE BEEN A CONTRIBUTING FACTOR…..NEW YORK (AP) ― A businessman claims in a lawsuit that he was injured when a stripper giving him a lap dance swiveled and smacked him in the face with the heel of her shoe.

Stephen Chang, a securities trader, said in court papers filed Friday that he was at the Hot Lap Dance Club near Madison Square Garden and was getting a paid lap dance when the accident occurred early Nov. 2, 2007.

According to the lawsuit, as the dancer swung around, the heel of her shoe hit him in the eye, causing him “serious injuries.”

A man who identified himself as the manager of the Hot Lap Dance Club said he was unaware of the accident or the state Supreme Court lawsuit. The club’s lawyer, Stephen Ateshoglou, did not immediately return a call.

On its Web site, the club describes itself as the “Playboy Mansion of Manhattan party lofts.” The site says admission is $50 plus a one-time club membership fee of $10 for newcomers. Lap dances cost around $40, plus admission, according to the Web site….READ FULL STORY…………..

Web Site Helps Officials Track Prostitution:

A Web site that evaluates the sex trade across the U.S. may help law enforcement crack down on prostitution.

Daniel Weiss, senior analyst for media and sexuality at Focus on the Family Action, said he was shocked by some of the content.

“What’s surprising is how clinical it is,” he said. “It will tell the user exactly what this woman is willing to do.”

“Law enforcement can look at this and see there’s clear solicitation of prostitution going on,” Weiss said. “And that’s a crime.

“Every police department in the country ought to log on to see who’s operating in their area.”
